RECORD PROJECT IMPACTS

Underpinning the work of SARE are theories that education can lead people (in our case, farmers and agricultural service providers) to positive new actions or changes in behavior. Changes sought by SARE are ones that can improve conditions for farmers and farm communities in ways that contribute to greater sustainability.

The  SARE Professional Development Grant Program uses an outcome funding approach to describe the changes in practices, behaviors or conditions that occur as a result of the project. 

We need project participants to record how these training impacted their capacity to work with and assist farmers.

SUGGEST CHANGES TO BOOK

The guide "A Practical Guide to No-till and Cover Crops in the Northeast" was created for this course. Our goal is to publish the book and provide it as a reference to farmers in the coming year.  

Yours is the first edition, and by no means perfect. We are interested in your feedback, advice, and comments. If you would like to add a suggestion, make a comment or contribute your own "Expert Tip" please Use the review software, GoVisually, to make comment. 

It is hard to find good, high-quality images of farming practices in the northeast!  If you have a photo you think would be perfect for inclusion in the book, use the form below to upload the image.
